Credit to Pant, we failed to execute plans: Rohit Sharma

first_imgMumbai: Mumbai Indians and their woe with opening games in the Indian Premier League continued on Sunday as they lost to Delhi Capitals by 37 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. While chasing Delhis score of 213 was never going to be easy, the failure of the top-order to make it count only made it all the more difficult for the home team.“The first game is always challenging for most of the teams because there are a lot of new players in the squad. We made a lot of mistakes today and that was the reason we lost the match,” skipper Rohit Sharma accepted.While the Mumbai batsmen failed to grab the opportunity, one man who made it count was Delhi wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant.Coming in to bat at the no.5 slot after the dismissal of Colin Ingram, Pant hit an unbeaten 78 off just 27 balls to take the game away from Mumbai and Rohit credited Pant for this fantastic display.“We were in the game in the first 10 overs while bowling but the way Rishabh batted, we have to give the credit to him. We missed our lengths and failed to execute our plans but that can happen as there are lot of new guys in the squad and understanding takes a bit of time,” he admitted.As a professional unit, Rohit said that the team must learn quickly from the mistakes they made in the opening game. In fact, he went on to add that there could be a few changes in the playing XI before the next game. IANSAlso Read: SPORTS NEWSlast_img read more
